Abstract:
Everglades National Park supports mixed recreational and commercial fisheries for red drum, sciaenops ocellata, and spotted seatrout, Cynoscion nebulosus. Within the 663,750 acres of the coastal waters of the park, there are six ecologically discrete systems ranging from 51,000 to over 164,00 acres each. Commercial fishing is prohibited in a total of 94,000 acres in two of these systems. The number of commercial fishermen involved in these fisheries fluctuated between 125 and 276 from 1963 to 1978. Recreational fishing activity increased steadily from 58,000 angler-days in 1959 to 174,000 in 1965.
